The promotion, called Flavor Credits, has seven prize levels from A to G that range from 5 to 5,000 Facebook Credits. According to the official rules, if your code doesn't happen to be a winner, you'll still get 1 free Facebook Credit out of it as a consolation prize. Sadly, only US-based Facebook users are eligible for this offer. But the good news for those who can benefit from this promotion is that there's a way you can get a free code without hunting for soda caps -- just send a hand-written 3"x5" card with your name, address, phone number (with area code), birthday, and email address to:
